New Spinnaker Design for Wayfarer

Following the Wayfarer class rule changes, P&B can now offer our recently developed spinnaker to our customers. Tested by both Martin Collen and P&B's Dave Wade, the sail has proved exceptionally fast. The ISAF ruling also allows self-certification so there is no hassle involved with measuring sails!

With plenty of sail development over the winter Dave hopes to improve on his fourth place at last years worlds.
